"Cutting your losses" is a business/financial concept that refers to getting out of a business venture that is losing money, with the intent to stop losing more money. The phrase has been adopted to a more general use to refer to the choice of stopping something that is destructive so that the losses already incurred do not take an even larger toll on us. For example, if you are in a bad/destructive relationship, there is a natural human inclination to hold on because of all of the time and emotions and energy that has been invested in that relationship. However, if the relationship is indeed a destructive relationship and causing you harm, more time will only incur more damage. The same is true for many behaviors that others may inflict on us. The initial behavior is destructive. It sucks when people treat us poorly or when they take advantage of us. However, it is often our choice to the extent that we allow the initial behavior to impact our present and more importantly, our future. The Dalai Lama once said, "Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace." Another way of say, "Don't let someone's crappy behavior towards you take away more than it already has.
